election day in harm's way it has put presidential campaign on pause. is president obama gaining political advantage by being in front of the storm? so, welcome to you both, i to start with something else. sound we got in mayor bloomberg in new york city, sounds likely is disinviting the president to new york. listen to this. >> we would love to have him but we have lots of things to do, not trying to dis him but i know he planned a trip to new jersey i said that finds that represents the whole region, people know the storm he does not -- he has a lot to do, and i was flattered high offered to come, but i think that thing for him to do is go to new jersey. and represent the country. gerri: brad, it sounds like he is saying, you know the last thing we need is a presidential motorcade here. >> he is right in some respects, i never thought i would be sticking up for obama, but i will, a president, has directed a lot of federal aid not only to people of city of new york and long island and new jersey, affected, ohio, and a president has to do two things, to be president of the united states, a
democrat in colorado would get out and vote. we have three votes in this house hold for obama. in a few days i will be mailing my ballot in. that's my comment. guest: we literally the same town. it's lewisville, colorado. it's the greatest small town in america. a great place to raise your family. there is a pitch my friends in city council will be happy for. a lot of others have already made up their minds. both sides can look at the recovery act and make strong cases for wire why not it did not work. we do not have enough time today to dispute that, but the point that we make in the editorials are that it provided significant spending to the state of colorado. it funded teacher jobs and other government programs to lessen the impact of the great recession here in the state and stimulus spending allowed for many of those schauble-ready -- shovel ready project to move forward. in recent history, we have had a hard time finding some of these on our own. women's health issue will be a big one, especially in the suburbs around denver. the automobile industry one does not play quite as stro

granholm. the election is only eight days away but with hurricane sandy winding its way up the east coast, president obama is focusing most of his attention on the federal response to the storm. mitt romney continues to do some campaigning. he held a townhall in ohio aboard his plane this afternoon. i'm joined again by chris lehane, a democratic strategist, a crisis communications expert. we did talk a little bit about what a challenger should do in light of this. i'm actually -- i want to go back to something else we began to talk about, which is in 2000 when al gore won the popular vote, but apparently lost -- at least one supreme court justice, but the question was at what point do you give up the ship. >> uh-huh. >> jennifer: you were inside those conversations, and would you have advise if we come down to an election that is so close like that. >> yeah. to me one of the critical issues is we had to deal with this the morning of the election, right? which is a lot of people didn't realize that al gore actually had won the popular vote. there was this impressi
straight day. president obama did not take questions on his campaign schedule at the red cross. instead he kept his focus on sandy. >> obviously this is something that is heartbreaking for the entire nation. >> the president has been hunkered down at the white house for the past two days, tracking the storm response. he canceled events in ohio, where the vice president said he might return to a normal stump schedule. >> we will resume our schedule in florida, starting tomorrow. >> governor mitt romney is expected to resume his campaign against mro in florida, but he paused to take part in a storm relief event, packing supplies bound for the east coast. >> we have people right now that are having some hard times because of this terrible hurricane and the storm that followed it. generosity will make a difference. >> with one week to go before the election, there are questions about whether hard-hit areas will be ready. >> election day does not matter to me at the moment. >> a situation like this has never been heard of in a presidential election. all bets are off. many political experts thin
. as president obama said the day after the second debate, he said the governor plans are awful sketchy. well president clinton, i don't like correcting president obama but i'm going to do it. his plans are not sketchy. they are etch-a-sketchy. they run away from their own shadows. just like a shadow, you cannot outrun it. the 2% tax cut that is due to expire in january. that tax cut will cause another $500 billion to 120,000 families with an average income of a million dollars a year. i come from the delaware. wealthy folks are not even asking for this tax cut. i said we want to make it permanent tax cut for 98% of the american people. all you have to do is let us vote on it. they said we cannot get a tax cuts for 98% of the american people. you're going to have to pay more a year if we do not extend the tax cuts. they say not unless the 120,000 families have half a trillion dollars. it is outrageous. the other candidates are running away from this. it is the ryan budget. it has already passed the united states congress. when it does pass, "the new york times" refers to it as the most extrem
prepared all of the damage that barack obama found on the day he took office when we were losing 800,000 jobs a month? he said, "no way." he said most countries that have these kind of damages took many years to get over. we do not go back. he said we can beat that. in america we can beat that. because of our energy and productivity of our workers, our research and development. maybe we could beat that. we could do seven or eight years and do better. nobody could have done it in four years. what has happened in four years? the president stopped the slide into a depression. you have been paid back for every nickel that was put into the financial industry plus interest. you got your money back. our banks are in the best shape they have been in 20 years thanks to those new rules on wall street that prohibit use for bailouts and protect against them goes to governor romney want to weaken. we have 5.3 million private sector jobs, twice as many as in the previous years under the republicans before the meltdown. as everyone knows, there are 250,000 more. i have heard governor romney's expla
of five voters say they are going to vote before election day, they split evenly between president obama and governor romney which tends to indicate that at least the enthusiastic el her voters are republican and the democrats have a prove with a lack of enthusiasm among their people and finally on election day the people would plan, just less than two-thirds 63 percent plan to vote on election day, they split for governor romney by the same number six points 51 to 45 percent so at least according to gallup this looks good. it is also borne out by if you look at the battleground state roughly 11 million, rather, 11 percent advantage for democrats either voting early or casting absentee ballot in 2008 but is far through roughly the 27th, it has been a decline of seven points if president obama declines seven point he is in trouble one with 53, dropping seven gives him 47. >>neil: how do you think the storm affects this in anyway? karl: where it is difficult to cope. romney will be hurt by heavy snow in unseasonably heavy snow in far southwestern virginia, coal country, inhospitable to pre
sandy disrupting the campaigns of president obama and governor romney seven days until election day. the president distracted dealing with a national emergency. governor romney distracted trying to find the appropriate balance of campaigning in the midst of national catastrophe. fox news chief white house correspondent ed henry with our report. >> this is a tough time for a lot of people. >> after cancelling to more campaign events president obama headed to the red cross to continue the role of heeler in chief. >> there is no excuse for inaction at this point. i won every agency to lean forward and to make sure that we are getting the resources where they need to know where they are needed as quickly as possible. >> looking presidential in the final week of a tight campaign in a role that won -- one rare praise from governor chris christie who gave the keynote address at the republican national convention. >> she has been very attentive. anything that i have asked for his gun. i think the president publicly for that. he has done as far as i'm concerned, great job for new jersey. >>
and months of clean-up and getting everything going again. it's just one day at a time. >> all right, susan mcginnis live in delaware, thank you. >>> and we are just learning that president obama has announced that he is going to travel tomorrow to new jersey to survey some of the damage there. >> indeed. >>> meanwhile, millions of people from maine to the carolinas are without power and east coast utility companies are calling on other states for a little bit of help. >> various agencies in california are now sending people out east. cbs 5 reporter elissa harrington is at sfo for an update on the response as well as continuing flight cancellations. >> reporter: several california agencies are responding, others on standby with you one problem that rescuers and travelers have having today, more cancellations to those cities that need help the most. >> i been sleeping on that little sofa over there. >> reporter: tommy is among thousands of stranded travelers waiting out sandy in an airport. he is trying to get back to new york where he is a grad student and doesn't want to miss class. he spe
coming but he's going with president obama knowing what signals that would send six days before the election? >> the thing about chris christie, he's a guy who's known to speak his mind. a lot of times speaking his mind means he's telling someone off or yelling at them. when he says something, it has a ring of authenticity. you don't get the idea he's being very politic. if you're a governor, you need to tour the damaged parts of your state with someone who can help you. walking around with mitt romney would just be a photo op but allowing the president of the united states to tour the devastated areas of new jersey would allow the president to know where resources need to be placed. chris christie is being governor as president obama is being president in chief, not a campaigner. there's no margin for christie to play party politics. he needs to get the job done as governor because as steve says, his job will be judged by how he handle this is hurricane. >> steve, how do you think the romney camp views this, who does need this and some other margins between now and next tuesday
for on election day. i'm call it o-win. in order for president obama to win he needs four states other than the ones he has locked up already. that's o for ohio, and right now election of polls at "huffington post" is looking at, not just one poll but a collection. 48.4%-45.7% lead for president obama. the likelihood that president obama has an actual lead based on the polls is 97%. that doesn't mean that he has a 97% chance of winning ohio. it just means that he has 97% of leading today in ohio. now wisconsin 49.8%-46.0%. probability of the lead today is 98.5%. then you go to i had iowa. another somewhat comfortable lead for president obama. probability of his lead is 95.3%. and then in nevada, 49.7%-46.4%, and again 98.1% chance that he actually has got the lead in that state. when you look at 95% and above in the four states that he absolutely has to win--he could lose every other state, florida, virginia, all the other swing states, north carolina, he still gets 277 electoral votes and continues to be president of the united states. so as we get all those national polls that make people
is usually a caustic partisan critic of president obama, but this is not one of those days. one of the ways to watch the realtime storm response in new jersey's largest city today was to follow the amazing twitter feed of that city's mayor corey booker. this person tweets to mayor booker, transformer just went kaboom. the mayor tweets back. we'll alert the utility company. i'm five minutes from you and will do a drive by. nine minutes later, the mayor says, gratitude at river view with team helping get folks to shelter. thanks for the heads up. then somebody tweets to the mayor. mr. mayor, underpass still has many homeless underneath. . three minutes later, the mayor tweets back, i'll head down now to take a look with emergency personnel. then by 5:46, less than an hour later, thank you, just left. we were able to convince and transport 3 homeless brothers and sisters to shelter. there's a lot on the plate of a big city mayor on any day, but there's a lot to be done to respond to a storm of this magnitude too. sometimes that gets done personally by the mayor himself. joining us is cory book
. >> and with only eight days to go, the election just might have to take care of itself. president obama shut down his campaign activities today. there are no public campaign events scheduled tomorrow for president obama. or vice president joe biden. the romney campaign announced mitt romney will host a so-called "storm relief event" in ohio tomorrow with nascar's richard petty. and country music's randy owen. if the serious aftermath of this hurricane runs into this weekend then for all practical purposes the candidates may have already made their closing arguments to the voters. what they have to say now may not be heard over the storm coverage. team obama's last public act took place in ohio while the president was in washington. >> we went to florida last night and he got up this morning and called me and said, i've got to go back right now. the storm is getting out of hand i have to handle it. i said, mr. president, that's the right call. >> i just want you to know, he asked me to express his regrets for not being able to be here but, you know, he's doing the job a president should be doing.
